 Butterfly Shoes

 

 

Amidst her butterfly curtains
and her little butterfly shoes
is a little butterfly bonnet
in shades of pinks and blues.

She looks so cute in her little shoes,
when out with her mom she goes,
For strolls throughout the town,
and to the circus shows.

But Mommy's precious baby,
has so quickly grown.
In her summer-time sandals
she's toddling all alone.

Her mommy is always at her side,
to kiss her when she fails,
And read a bedtime story,
of butterflies, birds, and snails.

 The nursery's now a bedroom,
the butterfly curtains gone,
For the school bus she now waits,
with the coolest shoes around.

She skips off to her classmates,
with her bouncing pony tail,
And smiles and waves bravely,
with her lovingly packed lunch pail.

 

As the years go drifting by,
her first high-heals appear.
Then cowboy boots and platform shoes,
and gazing into the mirror.

 Then suddenly she's all grown up,
and works a job of her own.
Taking all her things
to a place that she calls home.

My little girl is walking
with her father hand in hand,
In shoes of lace and satin,
the finest in the land.

I recall when she was small,
and now she is a bride.
What happened to my little girl,
and her shoes of butterflies?

And now Daughter, you're a Mom ...
and that makes me a Granny.
Your precious little baby,
will bring smiles to many.

Amidst her butterfly curtains
and her little butterfly shoes
is a little butterfly bonnet
in shades of pinks and blues.

 

Hold each moment closely,
and lock them in your heart,
For these days of love and trials,
soon drift in to years.

The little shoes will turn to bronze
and the pony tails will fade,
She'll blossom like a summer's rose,
before your very eyes.

Be always close by her side
when she needs a hand,
Make sure she knows that mother and God
will always understand.

Don't worry as she spreads her wings,
as all our daughters do,
One day she'll wear a mother's shoes,
and she'll come home to you.
